She plots to fleece Aidan – with a little help from Leanne…
Having had his cake and eaten it, two-timing Aidan Connor is about to face a serious case of indigestion. Fiancée Eva is out for revenge and plans to hit him where it really hurts – in his wallet.
‘Eva wants to see him end up with nothing,’ says actress Catherine Tyldesley. ‘The bunny-boiler gene has been lying dormant for a while, but now it’s back with a vengeance!’
It’s not just Eva who wants to, literally, make him pay. Adam – who also knows about Aidan and Maria’s affair – tells the businessman he wants £5k to keep his trap shut.
Will Aidan hand it over?
Believing his secret is still safe, Aidan later gives Eva a voucher for a spa day. She knows it’s just a ploy to get her out of the way, and cunningly asks Maria to join her. The crimper accepts, and tells David she plans to use it as an opportunity to tell Eva the truth.
Aidan panics when he sees the women leaving the cobbles together – and when a smug David tells him about Maria’s intentions, he hotfoots it over there to stop his lover blabbing. Meanwhile, Leanne is concerned when David tells her Eva and Maria are together, and decides to join them.
At the spa, Leanne realises that Eva is right to want revenge on Aidan. Armed with Aidan’s credit card, the sisters then go on a shopping trip, and return with a surprise purchase that leaves Aidan staggered.
Once he’s picked his jaw up off the floor, he apologises for over-reacting and offers to give his girlfriend a joint credit card.
It’s music to Eva and Leanne’s ears, who vow to bleed him dry.
